Glass globes

Are the large ornament globes (the glass ones that you put in your garden or yard) safe to stay outside in the cold winter months?

If you live in a cold climate, and if winter is harsh, better bring them in and protect them until the spring. They can be damaged by the cold, but more often the wind harms outdoor ornaments. Even if the wind weren't to blow the ornaments down, or away, something could be flying from another yard, or a branch could break and come down on the ornaments. It's just not worth it -- unless they're really heavy or too big to take inside.

If you live in Los Angeles, it?s safe outside. If you live in Minnesota or Maine, I wouldn?t recommend it. If you are worried about it being too cold, I would bring it in. They are handblown and probably the thickest glass you?ll ever see, but if moisture gets inside and then freezes?there are no guarantees. Thanx, Merk

Glass is usually pretty resistant to cold, even to freezing. What I would be more concerned about is any winter storms with strong winds. Falling ice from the roof can easily damage those glass garden globes. So for you to be on the safe side, I would suggest you to store them in your garage or shed and bring them back out in the Spring.
